Boil medium gently while adding ingredients except Cysteine HCl and Vitamin solution 2. Add the cysteine last after the medium has been cooled by bubbling oxygen free CO2 through it. When the medium has cooled to below 60°C, the pH is checked and adjusted if required. The complete medium is dispensed into appropiate vessels under a CO2 blanket, immediately sealed and autoclaved.

The VFA mix does not contain butyric acid for the purposes of the VFA analysis. The formula of the hemin and vitamin solutions are explained below.
